The Insurer may offer cover subject to exclusions or premium loadings, or may decline an application at its sole discretion. It is important to assess and review the information in this Booklet to understand the terms, conditions and exclusions applicable to you.

Complete the application form, filling out the Insurance section. You may be required to complete the Personal Statement form located with the application form or on our website, and provide additional documentation or undergo medical tests.

See Nominating your beneficiary in the Additional Information Booklet Part 1 General Information for more details. The payment of any claim will be subject to the assessment of evidence required by us or the Insurer. In the event of death, the Insurer will (within a reasonable timeframe) need copies certified by a legal practitioner, attorney or Justice of the Peace of the relevant: birth certificate, and death certificate. If the name on the birth certificate is different from the death certificate, a document such as marriage certificate or deed poll confirming the name change is also required. We may also need certified copies of Probate or Letters of Administration for the estate. To make a Death insurance claim, please mail the required documents to us. In order for a TPD claim to be payable, the claim must be made within two years of you first becoming absent from active work with your employer or as soon as reasonably practicable. The Insurer will determine TPD from the date the Medical Practitioner certifies the member as being TPD (provided the Insurer agrees with the assessment) or from the last day worked whichever is the later. To claim a TPD benefit, you must have ceased working due to a sickness or injury or where unemployed, were incapable of working due to a sickness or injury.

5 How are insurance premiums paid? Premiums are deducted monthly from your BT Super account so, in effect, you may be able to use your employer super contributions to pay for your insurance premiums. Alternatively, you can contribute additional before-tax dollars via a regular salary sacrifice arrangement (if your employer allows), or after-tax dollars, to ensure your insurance premiums do not erode the value of your BT Super investment. In addition, insurance premiums are generally tax deductible to BT Super the benefit of this deduction is passed back to you in the form of a reduced fee or cost where applicable. Costs of insurance cover The amount you pay for insurance is called an insurance fee, commonly referred to as insurance premiums. Your insurance premium will usually depend on a number of factors including: the level and type of insurance cover, your age, your gender, whether you smoke, and your occupation classification. You must advise us when you cease active continuous employment or you change employment status, so your premiums and cover can be reviewed and adjusted as appropriate. The current insurance premium rates are set out in How to estimate the cost of your insurance. Your insurance premium and amount of cover, if applicable, is calculated on commencement, on notification of certain changes to your membership details (eg occupation), and as at the 1st of your insurance anniversary month each year. The insurance premium rates may alter depending on the Insurer s assessment of your circumstances. The Insurer reserves the right to revise insured amounts or premiums in certain circumstances such as in the event of war or changes in tax legislation. Premium rates are non-participating and inclusive of stamp duty and an administration fee of 20.5% (inclusive of GST). If your stated age proves to have been incorrect, then: where your stated age means that insufficient insurance premiums have been paid, the amount payable and every benefit accruing under the Policy will be such as the insurance premiums paid would have purchased on the basis of the correct age; where your stated age means that excess insurance premiums have been paid, the premium not required in respect of the Plan Year shall be refunded; and any corrections will be treated as part of the normal premium adjustment. Understanding your insurance options When your cover starts Insurance cover will only start on the date the Insurer accepts your application for insurance by formally notifying you in writing. The Insurer can accept or reject an application for cover at its discretion. This is subject to the receipt and assessment of requested medical evidence, other particulars and your acceptance of any special terms. You must have enough funds in your BT Super account to pay the insurance premium for your insurance cover to continue see Making sure your cover continues below for more information. Interim accident cover Once the Insurer has received a fully completed application and is assessing the application, the applicant will receive Accidental Death or Accidental Death and Accidental TPD cover (depending on the type of cover applied for). Accidental Death or Accidental Death and Accidental TPD interim cover will be equal to the lesser of the insured amount that has been applied for or $1 million. The cover will apply from the date the Insurer receives the application until the earlier of: the date cover is accepted or declined, 180 days from the date the application was signed for the amount sought, or the date you cancel or withdraw your application. Making sure your cover continues Each year your cover is renewed without additional medical declarations being required, subject to the Policy continuing to be in place and you still meeting the eligibility requirements. The Insurer may decline to offer cover. Continued cover also depends on ongoing payment of insurance premiums. Once your cover ceases, you will need to reapply for cover and new underwriting requirements (for example, medical evidence) as well as new terms of cover may apply. If you re an existing member and the balance of your BT Super account is insufficient to pay the bt.com.au 5
6 Insurance in your super (Continued) insurance premiums, you will be notified and will have a two calendar months grace period from when the last insurance premium was deducted from your account to make a sufficient contribution to your account before cover is discontinued. If a sufficient contribution is not received within this period, cover will be cancelled with effect from the date the grace period expires. Cover remains in force during the grace period, however, any unpaid premium after the expiry of the grace period will cause the cover to lapse. If you die or are disabled during the grace period and a benefit is payable by the Insurer, the amount insured will be adjusted for any outstanding insurance premiums. If you wish the cover to start again after being cancelled, you will need to reapply for cover. Medical evidence may need to be submitted, assessed and accepted by the Insurer before cover is re-established. Please note, we are not responsible for monitoring or notifying you if your insurance cover has lapsed or will lapse. Consolidating your other insurance You can easily apply to consolidate Death Only or Death and TPD cover held within other super funds or held outside super into your BT Super account by completing an Individual Insurance Consolidation Application form, available on our website at bt.com.au, and supplying the required evidence.

You have the same duty to disclose these matters to the Insurer before you extend, vary or reinstate a contract of life insurance. However, your duty does not require disclosure of a matter: that diminishes the risk to be undertaken by the Insurer, that is common knowledge, that your Insurer knows, or ought to know, in the ordinary course of its business, or as to which compliance with your duty is waived by the Insurer. References in the Life Insurance Application form or insurance Personal Statement to you, the investor or the member therefore encompass your application to us for insured benefits under BT Super. -disclosure If you fail to comply with your duty of disclosure and the Insurer would not have entered into the contract on any terms if the failure had not occurred, the Insurer may avoid the contract within three years of entering into it. If your non-disclosure is fraudulent, the Insurer may avoid the contract at any time. An insurer who is entitled to avoid a contract of life insurance may, within three years of entering into it, elect not to avoid it but to reduce the sum that you have been insured for, in accordance with a formula that takes into account the insurance premium that would have been payable if you had disclosed all relevant matters to the Insurer. Do you need to provide medical evidence? For information on what medical information may be required, please contact Customer Relations on _ See definitions at the back of this booklet. The type and level of cover may be dependent on medical assessment and acceptance by the Insurer. Generally, the cost of any required medical evidence and/or reports will be met by the Insurer. You should not arrange for any medical evidence and/or reports before being instructed by the Insurer as you will not be reimbursed for the expense of any particular medical evidence and/or reports which the Insurer does not require. The Insurer can request additional medical evidence and/or reports at its discretion to enable assessment of the application. Exclusions Various exclusions apply to both Death Only and Death and TPD cover so please consider these carefully. Insurance benefits will not be payable for: claims in respect of a Death benefit as a result of an intentional, self-inflicted act, whether sane or insane, within a period of 13 calendar months from the date of joining or rejoining BT Super or, in the event of an increase in cover, within a period of 13 calendar months from the date of the increase (in respect of the increase only), claims in respect of a Death or TPD benefit which are caused by, or as a result from, Active Service 1, or claims in respect of any other underwriting exclusion imposed by the Insurer. -Australian Residents Cover for non-australian Residents will only be provided to a member who holds a Visa and permanently resides in Australia.

12 Insurance in your super (Continued) How and when are Death and TPD benefits paid? The payment of any insurance benefit is conditional on the Insurer accepting the claim and paying the benefit to us as the Trustee. Generally, both Death and TPD benefits are first paid as a lump sum to us. The benefit is payable in addition to the value of your investment in BT Super. Any insurance benefit paid to us will be held in a non-interest bearing account which will not be subject to investment earnings or losses, and will be paid as part of the final Death or TPD benefit if allowed under superannuation law. Your investment choices will continue to apply until the benefit payment is processed. Payment of Death benefits We ll generally pay Death benefits to your dependant(s) or to your estate provided the conditions of the Trust Deed and Australian superannuation law are met. For information about nominating beneficiaries and payment of Death benefits, refer to Nominating your beneficiary and Accessing your super in the Additional Information Booklet Part 1 General Information. Payment of TPD benefits Refer to the Total and Permanent Disablement definition below for details of the TPD definition under which a lump sum TPD benefit may be paid to you. As there are restrictions about when members can access their super, we will only be able to release the TPD benefit if you meet a condition of release under superannuation law. Refer to Eligibility rules for accessing super in the Frequently Asked Questions at bt.com.au for information about conditions of release. Terminal Illness benefit If you have Death cover and are Terminally Ill, the Insurer will pay a Terminal Illness benefit. This Terminal Illness benefit is a pre-payment of the insured benefit you would ordinarily receive upon death. If you receive a Terminal Illness benefit, any death benefit paid to your beneficiaries will be reduced by the amount paid to you as a Terminal Illness benefit. The Terminal Illness benefit will be limited to the lower amount of either your Death insurance cover amount or $3 million. Where your Death cover is greater than $3 million, the remaining Death cover will remain within BT Super until you attain the age of 70 or cover ceases under one of the other conditions of cessation of cover set out in the When your cover ends section, provided premiums continue to be paid. If death occurs prior to you attaining the age of 70 or cover otherwise ceasing, the remaining Death cover will be paid at that time to your beneficiaries or to your estate consistent with the terms of the Trust Deed. If you re diagnosed with suffering from a Terminal Medical Condition (as defined under superannuation law) you may be able to access your preserved super benefits, and any benefit payment you receive because of this condition may be exempt from tax. For more information refer to Taking a cash lump sum as a result of a terminal medical condition in the Additional Information Booklet Part 1 General Information. Please note: To be eligible for a Terminal Illness benefit, you must be certified by two registered Medical Practitioners that you are likely to die within a period of no more than 12 months after the date of the certification (please see the Definitions and interpretation of insurance terms section of this booklet for the full definition of Terminal Illness ). However, the definition of Terminal Medical Condition under superannuation law has a different certification period of up to 24 months. This means that you may not be eligible for a Terminal Illness insured benefit even if you can access your superannuation on grounds of suffering a Terminal Medical Condition. If you withdraw your entire superannuation benefit you will lose any insurance you currently have. If you want your insurance to continue you will need to leave sufficient balance in your account to fund future premiums. This information is intended as a guide only and does not constitute advice. Before making a withdrawal you should speak to your financial adviser about the impacts this could have on your insurance entitlements
